Kim Kern begins her first season as an assistant coach at NC State in 2013. She spent the previous year as the Director of Operations for the women's soccer program.
"Kim brings a lot of knowledge and experience, not just to the goalkeeper position on the coaching side, but to the program as a whole with her knowledge of NC State and the Raleigh area. She's already been a great support person in my transition these first few months," said head coach Tim Santoro.
The Raleigh, N.C., native graduated from NC State in May 2012 with a degree in sport management. She was a four-year starting goal keeper for head coach Steve Springthorpe, making 66 career starts in net, including 57 out of 58 games her final three seasons.
Kern's 324 career saves is third best in school history, while her 1.29 goals-against-average and 15 shutouts rank fourth and fifth, respectively.
She was a two-time ACC All-Academic Team member, and earned Academic All-District first team honors during her junior season.
